PUERTO RICO. By IMANI. Can you imagine living in a place where it never snows? I can because my dad told me that his dad lived in a place called Coamo in Puerto Rico.
There are many resources in Puerto Rico like cattle, lobster, and tobacco. They use these resources to sell, to cook and to eat. They also have more resources. They are stone, copper, and nickel.
Some people think that Puerto Rico is crowded, but it is not. It has just 3,860,091 people and it's size is only 3,508 square miles.
Puerto Rico has had many hurricanes. They did a lot of damage to many people’s homes. One hurricane nearly destroyed Puerto Rico. The name of the hurricane is Hurricane Isabel. She is one of the worst hurricanes ever to hit Puerto Rico.
Some people did not want to go to Puerto Rico because of that hurricane. But I still would like to go to Puerto Rico some day. Would you like to go to Puerto Rico?
